Welcome to the first edition of Sunday Beauty School! Here I’ll be sharing my favourite products of the week and handy tips to make your at-home beauty routine all the better. First up are my favourite products of the week.
Bumble and Bumble Bb. Repair Blow Dry, $18 (60ml)
I’m sure we can all agree that there are far more enjoyable things to do than blowdrying your own hair, however the awesome team over at Bumble and Bumble have helped make the experience far more pleasurable (and quicker) with the new Bb. Blow Dry range.
The Repair elixir helps you say goodbye (and don’t come back!) to those nasty split ends and damaged tresses caused by heat styling. Even those with super fine hair will be able to achieve smooth, bouncy, frizz-free locks.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Sexy Sienna, $46
Legendary makeup artist to the stars Charlotte Tilbury released her debut beauty line in 2014 and true to the legend herself each item is flawless.
The modern coral colour of Sexy Sienna has been inspired by Hollywood glamour Sienna Miller and is the perfect daytime hue.
The Matte Revolution lipstick is super silky in texture, long-lasting and pigment-rich. The cleverly constructed square-shape of the lipstick has been designed to replicate the function of a brush for precision application.
Bobbi Brown Brightening Brick in Coral, $75 (limited edition)
Bobbi Brown, the queen of cosmetics has recently released a series of cheek “bricks”, each featuring 6 grown-up shimmery shades. Create a soft glowing complexion by sweeping this palette over the apples of your cheeks and across your cheekbones. The delicate texture is lightweight and easy to work with.
PRTTY PEAUSHUN Skin Tight Body Lotion, $27 (89ml)
This lotion adds a beautiful soft shimmery glow to your skin making it perfect for applying to your legs and arms before a night out on the town. The ingredients (which include avocado and Japanese green tea) tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of blotchiness, stretch marks and veins (win!). This is the perfect summertime lotion and is also available in tinted formulas for those needing a little more colour on their pins.
Hourglass Panoramic Lip Liner in Canvas, $38
It’s this liner’s staying power that made me fall in love, lasting the distance through my work day or evening without requiring reapplication (yes, really!). The consistency is lovely and creamy without being too soft and crumbly.
To apply, simply line your lips with the pencil before blending with the brush to achieve defined lips with no feathery bits. There are 7 great colours in the range which pair well with most lippy hues.
